30 day period to purchase guns in CA


Jun 5, 2012

When does the 30 days start to purchase another gun in CA? After the ten days is up on the first gun or when you pick the first gun up?
It is 30 days from the first minute the original DROS is run or 720 hours. It only applies to handguns. Longuns can be purchased every day without time restrictions.

Example: You buy a handgun at 10:00 AM on August 1st (time and date the DROS was run) and on August 31st at 10AM you can purchase another and DROS.

There is nothing stoping you from buying 5 handguns at a time but you can only DROS and pickup a handgun one every 30 days or 720 hours
